About this property
A cosy, semi-detached cottage set in the country village of Dearham, five miles from Cockermouth and a few miles from Cumbria’s sweeping coastline. As soon as you step inside Violet Cottage, you will feel immediately at home as the owner has taken great care to ensure guests will have every comfort. The property has been tastefully furnished and is warm and welcoming, making it a perfect base for exploring this charming area. There is a cosy sitting room with a woodburning stove to snuggle next to on chilly evenings, a stylish kitchen with dining area, a bright ground floor bathroom, and upstairs, two delightful bedrooms. Outside, you’ll find an enclosed garden with furniture, so you can enjoy a morning coffee in the fresh air whilst planning your day. This cottage sits two miles from the historical harbour town of Maryport, where you can discover its past with a wander around the port or a visit to the Maritime Museum. Take time to explore the wild, windswept coast of Cumbria, especially Allonby, a few miles to the north, with its mesmerising views across the Solway to Scotland. The Solway Firth Coast provides an amazing landscape, perfect for a bracing walk beside the sea whilst watching the many wading birds and waterfowl that settle here throughout the year. Further south, the beautiful Lake District National Park can be discovered within a 15 minute drive and it is just a 30 minute drive to Keswick. This charming cottage makes a splendid base for couples or families at any time of the year.
